In life, generally the real thing is better than the imitation. But every once in a while, something comes along that?s better than the real thing. Our new Maplestick is made with nothing but maple wood and nylon, for a durable fetch toy which will have dogs ditching regular sticks. The Maplestick is a nylon/wood mix and it has a bit more ?give? than our other flavored nylon chew toys. /Benebone Maplesticks come in SMALL, MEDIUM, and LARGE and just one flavor ? maple wood. Weight is only a rough guide to sizing, and cannot replace the monitoring of a dog?s chewing habits. When in doubt, choose the larger size chew toy for safety?s sake.
